"Mary Ann Roser brings to every project a curiosity, an intelligence and a sharp willingness to question that marked her successful career as a newspaper reporter, especially with the often complex world of health and medicine. Her attention to detail and an insistence on thoroughly understanding a subject before writing about it meant that she could, and did, write authoritatively and yet in a way that non-experts could understand. She got it right, and made it clear."
"Mary Ann Roser was among the strongest reporters at the Austin American-Statesman during my 13 years as editor. She excelled at digging out information, assessing its importance, organizing content and writing in a clear, coherent and lively style. She became a skilled and expert reporter in higher education and then health care and medicine."
"Mary Ann Roser was my editor and advisor in publishing 'Phantom in the Family, Tracking Down My Runaway Father.' She went far beyond the usually accepted expectations of a book editor, which she also met to perfection. She asked key questions that pushed me to consider including events and feelings … and that vastly improved my initial product. Writers satisfied with their manuscript have not yet had the benefit Mary Ann’s critique and advice."
"Aside from being a friendly person, Mary Ann has been the most knowledgeable – and fair – reporter about health care in our region. It was so helpful and time-saving not having to ‘educate’ her about the basics of a very complex topic. I long admired her reporting."
"Mary Ann Roser has the ability to take complex issues and make them accessible and meaningful for the general public. She is thorough, accurate and extremely diligent; she's a real pro.”
